For one, we can look at ourselves and see how we value each of these things. Achieving is for you. You achieved your degree, you achieved a title at work, etc. Fulfillment is doing things for others. Feeding your soul and heart. Fulfilment comes when you have impacted another life with your positivity. It can be through charity, mentoring or simply by being a good friend or partner.

There’s a fine line between chasing and attracting. We all want to be successful in our goals. As we strive to build our business we may end up chasing down leads instead of attracting people or businesses to us. Chasing involves going after each individual and wearing them down over time. It’s hard work. Attracting comes naturally and has an organic feel to it that leads itself better to trust.
